What do you do when life falls apart, and it feels as if God has left you? How do you keep going when your faith is rocked to the core? Sometimes things get so hard we're not sure where God is - or what he's up to.
For Patrick there was pain, illness, and loss in his family and community. Then a series of excruciating operations took him to the brink physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Writing during his journey of recovery, Patrick explores how we find God in times of suffering. He wrestles with how we can know God's peace when life is anything but peaceful, what the true nature of courage is, how we allow ourselves the grace to rest when we're running on empty, and how we can stay fully present in the moment - all so we can ultimately grasp the love of God at a deeper level.
Patrick is the founder of the charity XLP, which fights poverty, supports education and helps young people in the London area. He recently won the Mayor of London's peace award, speaks regularly at Soul Survivor and Spring Harvest, and is a frequent guest on radio and TV programmes speaking about issues of poverty and justice.
